A new study suggests people are more stressed out at home than at work.

Penn State researchers measured levels of cortisol in the saliva of 122 men and women throughout the week. Cortisol is a hormone that's produced when a person feels stress.

The participants had lower cortisol levels during the work day than when they were at home.

Women also reported being happier while at work especially those with no children.
